Softball Falls in Series Finale at Maryland
April 21, 2013
COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The BC softball team tried to build momentum after their game two win in yesterday’s doubleheader, but the Terps bats came alive in a 10-1 five inning victory over the Eagles on Sunday at Taylor Stadium.
Chelsea Dimon fell to 9-12 this season as she allowed four earned runs on six hits over four innings. Stephanie Lord pitched the fifth inning in relief for the Eagles – allowing five earned runs on five hits in 0.2 innings. Kaitlyn Schmeisser recorded her second win of the weekend as she allowed just one earned run on five hits over five innings to improve to 12-10.
Maryland jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first on the strength of Shannon Bustillos’ two-run single. BC’s lone run of the day came in the top of the second as Ronnie Mae Ayers singled home Maria Pandolfo who doubled earlier in the inning.
The Terps added two more in the second with Juli Strange’s solo shot to take a 5-1 lead. BC wasn’t able to get anything going against Schmeisser – as she retired the next seven Eagles entering the bottom of the fifth.
Maryland tallied five more runs in the fifth with the game ending on Strange’s second homer of the game – a two-run shot to give the Terps a 10-1 win in the series finale.
BC will return home this week with six home games starting with Hartford on Wednesday before hosting Harvard for a doubleheader on Thursday.
Team Records: Boston College (11-30, 2-13 ACC); Maryland (25-23, 9-6 ACC).
